JDRF One Dream Gala To Honor Longtime Partner, Truist and McGriff!


The JDRF Greater Delaware Valley Chapter is proud to announce we will be honoring Truist and its retail insurance business McGriff with the JDRF Living and Giving award at the 2023 One Dream Gala on Saturday, April 15, 2023. Partnering with Truist and McGriff over the years has been a clear driver in helping to move our mission forward, and we are thrilled to celebrate and recognize their remarkable commitment.


The purpose of the greater Truist organization is to inspire and build better lives and communities. Since 2013, the company has taken that focus and applied it in their support of and dedication to JDRF chapters across the country to become increasingly dedicated partners in type 1 diabetes (T1D) research.


The solid support and pursuit to help build better lives in the T1D community has been felt across JDRF, from Walk and Gala sponsorships to direct campaign funding. As Executive Director (JDRF Delaware Valley Chapter) Lindsay Fortese notes, “We are truly grateful for the generosity that Truist and McGriff continue to provide to JDRF. We would not be able to carry our mission forward without such amazing partners. continuing to make a difference.”


“Here at Truist and McGriff, we have a deep routed belief of helping to build better lives for those in our communities,” said Travis Rhodes, Delaware and Lehigh Valley regional president for Truist.  “T1D is a rapidly rising disease and we want those in our community to know we are here to support them by funding research to lessen the daily burden until the cures are found.”


Please join us in celebrating the tremendous impact Truist and McGriff have made on the T1D community on Saturday, April 15, 2023, at the Loews Hotel in Philadelphia, PA. For more information about the One Dream Gala, please visit our website or contact Allison Tropea at atropea@jdrf.org.
